We were there in October. In the river was not so much water, but the falls still have some water. Unfortunately you have to pay 8 bucks for parking on the site. But still worth the money.

This is the most beautiful area that I know of on the Central Coast. The waterfalls are beautiful, although through the l;ack of rain,they are not "falling" at the moment.

Excellent after rain. Walkways have been installed to assist accessing viewing points. BBQ and grass areas for picnics. Parking is expensive and many park outside and walk in
